Wymond Miles

Four years ago Wymond Miles, guitar player and songwriter in San Francisco's The Fresh & Onlys, began writing solo material thematically based on the concepts of eschatology, anthroposophy, and Gnostic and Hermetic symbolism. Drawing from a vast musical pool of inspiration, including Scott Walker, Robert Wyatt, Arvo Part, and Nikki Sudden amongst others, Earth Has Doors is Miles' first solo release. Since beginning Miles had basically shelved these songs to attend school, focus on fatherhood, and commit to the demanding schedule of the F&O's. He earned a degree in humanities with an emphasis on the philosophical implications of the ecological/economic crisis of our times, and that subject matter can be traced throughout his first EP. These songs concisely yet esoterically document the existential crisis of our current epoch — moving from the nothingness of modern materialism, fragmented reductionist thought, and drug escapism to a world imbued with subjectivity and meaning through a new relationship with the Earth and cosmos as alive and full of inherent intelligence.

Pale Sun

Pale Sun was formed by the steady gravitational force between Jeff Suthers and Kit Peltzel. With Jeff in Volplane and Kit in Space Team Electra, the two existed as close families, playing gigs and spending many epic and inspired years together. Time passed, those bands broke up and each continued on with other projects of varying success. Jeff with Bright Channel, Orbiteer and Pteranodon and Kit with Snake Rattle Rattle Snake, Mr. Pacman and The Denver Gentlemen. It wasn't until Jeff formed Moonspeed that the two actually played together. This short lived space rock orchestra succumbed to the pressure of organizing the eleven busy musicians. When Kit left SRRS, the two decided to join forces and Pale Sun was born. They quickly sought out the incredible talents of Brian Marcus of Tjutjuna on guitar and Eddie Corcoran to hold down the bass notes. After all those years of playing with serious intentions, Pale Sun has taken the approach of writing and performing music for the pure love of it, always bringing the heart of the music to the front while letting the rest fall into place. As might be expected, the sounds shimmer in the light of Shoegaze with hints of surf in the guitar tones while the bass and drums drive the cadence to the celestial shore.
